Ashley's Birthday Blog Hop!!

Welcome to Ashley’s Birthday Blog Hop! I am so excited that she has asked me to participate in my very FIRST blog hop! Hopefully it is not my last and the beginning of many more to come! If you are just coming from http://courtscrafts.blogspot.com/ then you are on the right track if not you may start at the beginning of the hop by visiting Ashley’s blog http://myscrappinpalace.blogspot.com/ and be sure to wish her a Happy Birthday!

She has asked us to create something that had to do with birthday animals. Correct me if I am wrong but Create a Critter was the perfect cartridge that came to mind for this hop. I have created two cards both using Create a Critter and I absolutely think they both turned out stinkin cute!!

This is a regular A2 size card using Create a Critter.  The crap was cut at 3.5' and was adhered with an action wobble. The shell was also cut at 3.5'.  The sentiment used is from  My Pink Stamper More Punny-licious Stamp Set. SU cardstock, PP, punch, and MS baker's twine were used in this project.  I added some stickles to her rosy cheeks to finish it off!

My second card is also a regular A2 size card and the piggy was cut at 3.5', party hat at 1' and phrase bubble at 2'.  The sentiment used is from Scrappy Moms Sweet Something Stamp Set.  SU cardstock, PP, ribbon and twine were used in this project.  I also added some stickles and my forever learning doodling!

This blog hop would not be complete without me offering some blog candy!!  In order to be eligible to win you must become a follower and leave a comment.  I will use random.org to pick a winner on Friday.  Wanna know what's up for graps!! Fancy pants rub ons, ribbon, pearls, a stamp set, assortment of felt flowers and a set of circle cards which I might add love them!!  Good luck to all those that enter!

I have included a list of all the lovely ladies blogs to hop on over to just in case you get lost so be sure to check them out!  Your next stop will be Angela at http://creativecraftin.blogspot.com/
